Dukai István

EXTENTA - DUKAI ISTVÁN

István Dukai (1987, Zenta, Yugoslavia) is a graphic and visual artist currently living and working in Budapest and Eger. He is a leading graphic designer and art director for several European based brands. His work can be found in several important private collections. His art is rooted in the geometric tradition, in the philosophy of constructivism, in op-art, but most of all in minimal art. The basic principle of his compositions is reductionism, based on the stylization of natural elements into geometric forms and the varied ways in which these elements are combined.

Puklus Péter

Két kék figura vörös kontúrral - Puklus Péter

Studied photography at the Moholy-Nagy University of Fine Arts in Budapest and new media design at the École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle in Paris. Puklus is also exploring new areas outside the field of photography. By combining sculptures, objects, paintings and installations, he creates a complex visual language that is based on emotions, associations and collective memory. He has published four photo books, including The Epic Love Story of a Warrior, which was nominated for the 2016 Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Award. His photo project, The Hero Mother – How to Build a House won the Grand Prix Images Vevey 2017/2018. He has taken part in numerous international group exhibitions in Budapest, Brussels, Freiburg, Tallinn and Utrecht. He has had solo shows in Hungary, Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Poland and other countries. He lives and works in Budapest. He is represented by Glassyard Gallery (Budapest), Robert Morat Galerie (Berlin) and Klotz Shows (Brussels).

Péter Puklus no longer wants to divide photography into genres, and chooses instead to employ it as a kind of visual alphabet to conceptually approach one larger-scale project or another, which he complements with the genres of sculpture, painting and installation art. His conceptual and performative studio works allude to the ‘creative gesture’ of the photographer and the classical ideal of the artist’s freedom:
If I claim to be a photographer, that, from my perspective, is raising walls around myself. Or I say I’m free and I use whatever medium I want. I can go on and take photos for the rest of my life, if that’s what I want, but I don’t want the medium to define me.
(Péter Puklus)
